I Turn on my Dell Latitude D600, goes to desktop, no icons appear in the bottom right corner, then freezes and all of the desktop icons disappear and all that is visible is the wallpaper. What do I do?


Restart the Computer and when the Computer is Turned Off and trying to Come back On keep on tapping the F8 Button on the Keyboard, till you get the Advanced Boot Options. On the Advanced Boot Options select the Option which says Safe Mode and Press Enter. Let Me know If you face the same Kind Off Situation even in the Safe Mode!
Good Luck!!!!
